    If you are looking for a place with great food, check out Kaets Steakhouse at Sonesta Gwinnett Place. From the Creamy Collards to the Banana Foster Fried Pie, everything was simply delightful! The staff was professional, courtesy and friendly. They help make the dining experience memorable. I love how they list where they get their products from and even have their own herb garden that they use!

    I chose this restaurant because it was Gwinnett Restaurant Week and it was an opportunity to try the food. We ordered an appetizer that had grits and was fabulous! The Carolina fish was okay. The Coconut Cake was mediocre and firm. They added 18% gratuity to my check for a party of 2 then charged an additional 20% gratuity on top of that. When I called about the cahrge, I was told that they do that to ensure funds are available in the event that I want to leave extra money for the tip. That means that automatically charged an additional 38% on my bill for a party of 2. The additional 20% was removed once the charge cleared however, as a result, I will never go there again.

    Almost a year ago I gave this place a 5 and had high hopes for it. There isn't much around for a good steak dinner in a setting fit for business. It is still quiet but that's about all. Mediocre steaks, clearly Choice - not Prime - I turn out better on my home low temp grill. A big miss for a place that uses Steak reversed for its name. Mushroom ragout lacked any depth of flavor - some one skimped on the browning. The truffle fries - a hit a year ago - were again rushed. Didn't appear to have been double fried - or had been sitting a very long time. The truffle flavor was distinctly missing. Tried to get after dinner espressos but the machine had been turned off and apparently no one could turn it back on.

    Kaets was chosen because of the reviews, but I can honestly say that the reviews weren't accurate. The service was awful, the waiter had the worse attitude abd treated us as thoughWe were bothering him when we had questions about the menu. He never came to check on us or ask how we were doing at all. Even when we requested more bread for our table of 10+ he brought us an empty basket so we're could share. The food was Either undercooked or over cooked. There were only two people at the table who enjoyed their meal. When we tried you address the food and service the manager was dismissive and cavalier. Even though they were notified it was my aunt's birthday they made no effort to even ensure a pleasurable experience.

    The place is small and cozy. We ordered from the set menu for this occasion. I had the petite filet with over smashed new potatos with wild morel sauce. Steak was cooked to order and wonderful. The sauce was a little on the salty side. My SO had salmon over rissoto and asparagus, her portion was huge with great flavor. We both had the crab appetizer and then salad. She also had a corn bisque that was very good. Bread and butter were offered. A dessert platter and a bottle of wine. The cost was 90.00 plus an 18% gratuity. I felt the evening was well worth the money. We will go back to try there regular menu.

    Located inside the Sonesta Hotel in Gwinnett County, Kaets is a suburban jewel offering cuisine and atmosphere that we usually only find in the city. The atmosphere was quiet and pleasant making it a perfect spot to dine with friends on a Saturday night. The menu is small but all the dishes are wonderful. Try the Brasstown Beef selections. The Seered Beef Tenders cut with a fork and taste wonderful. The desserts were so-so. The servers were attentive and we never felt rushed.

    Food was pretty good, especially the crab cake and fried green tomato appetizer. I think the restaurant could stand to make some minor improvements in how it provides service to its customers. There was 1 waiter servicing the restaurant at the time I was there and we seemed to wait forever while server was in kitchen. I couldn't help but notice the hostess and a manager standing around and talking while 3 to 4 tables waited for our 1 server to balance their needs. This went on for the entire 2 hours we were there. Had the hostess, who did not seat anyone the entire time we were there, actually refilled a glass or asked any of the 4 tables if they needed anything, imagine what a much better experience that would be.

    Excellent replacement for the old JW Marriott. Excellent locally focused menu - locally sourced beef, cooked perfectly. We had a rare and a medium and both met specs. - in house cured bacon - nice variations on old favorites. wedge salad was a romaine wedge - house cured bacon - crumbles from the Prime rib added crunch.

    This restaurant was a surprise for us, living in Gwinnett for many years and never having been. The ambiance and decor created a beautiful dining room, and the service was very good, although our waiter seemed to be the only one serving the night we went. The food was good and well presented, but would've liked more choices in the "healthy vegetable" category, i.e. more green stuff. All in all, we enjoyed the experience and would go back since it's fine dining in a multi-ethnic area of Gwinnett.

    Very nice place, but awful MUZAK. Very chilly. Our waiter offered us a table further from the A/C vent, but it was still uncomfortable. I had the trout. Overall the dish was good, but the trout itself was a little fishy. My wife had the vegetarian portabella dish, which she thoroughly enjoyed. Sides are a la carte, which will raise your bill. And the only vegetable on the menu is creamed collards. Would like to see some grilled or roasted veggies. We ordered a side of marinated mushrooms. It was a large serving, and they were pretty good, but were served lukewarm. Our waiter apologized and said he'd tell the kitchen, but did not offer to correct the problem. Chalking it all up to growing pains. We'll give it 6 months or so and try it again.

    My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our Valentine's Day dinner at JW's Steakhouse. The wine, entrees, and dessert were prepared perfectly. Also, the team work was exceptional, and everyone was friendly. The atmosphere was fitting for the occassion. We will certainly return if in the area again.

    The steaks are of the highest quality, the other food is excellent as well, and the service is polite and attentive. Very tastefully decorated, although the tastefulness is also a little off-putting: i wouldn't walk in here wearing jeans, and i might even wonder if i should wear a tie or a jacket.

    A Medium Well Stake was dry and not a bit of pink inside. The salad was wilted as if it were sitting out for some time. The manager did reduce the check by $5. after I made my bad comments. It took a good fifteen minutes to receive our check after we requested. I will not visit JW's again.

    Steak entree and Salmon entree were excellent. Unfortunately, we had some issue with management on the use of the Open Table Certificate on December 31st, 2011. There were no restrictions regarding dates or holidays on the Certificate. They took issue with the fact it was New Years Eve. However, New Years Eve is not an Federal or State holiday. Eventually the use was authorized. Again I do emphasis that the food was quite good. When looking for an excellent steak cooked to order I would consider returning.

    The steakhouse is pretty quiet when we were there. We sat at the first table, which is the biggest round table by the entrance. The my steak was done just right, but the sides were a bit too salty. Waitress was very attentive and friendly. Left her a nice tip (don't tell my wife). Overall my family of five enjoyed our Saturday evening dining at the Marriott steakhouse.

    I had a very bad experience with the wait staff and the manager, but I will say I contacted Marriott Hotel and they refunded my money and offered to allow me to come back again. Apparently, the restaurant was no familiar with my Open Table voucher and she did not apply it properly and gave me inaccurate information. Also, she (the waitress) was loud and not respectful to me. It seemed as if she treated me a certain way because I had the Open Table voucher.
